Region Heathcote

Heathcote is situated about 100 km north of Melbourne in Central Victoria at altitudes between 160-380 metres. This is classic rolling Australian countryside punctuated by eucalypts and rounded hills. The defining feature of the region is the ‘Heathcote red snake’ a strip of ancient, deep, red Cambrian soils with good water holding capacity, imparting a distinct and unique flavour profile to Shiraz, the superstar of the region. The region is warm and strongly continental with low rainfall, but enjoys an even temperature range during ripening. Founded in the 1850’s Heathcote was originally a gold rush town. Vines were planted in the 1860’s, but were subsequently decimated by phylloxera with modern day plantings only re-established during the 1960’s. Although best known for its rich tannic powerful Shiraz, Heathcote also produces a wide range of varieties including Riesling, Chardonnay and Viognier alongside the Bordeaux varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Emerging varieties of Sangiovese and Tempranillo also show great promise.

Winery THE GRAILLOT PROJECT

Graillot

The Graillot Australia project is a partnership between Northern Rhône legend Alain Graillot and Robert Walters from Bibendum. Together they own a 3.3ha plot in Heathcote (nicknamed Clos Graillot) an east-facing hillside site in the Mt Camel Ranges. The vineyard is an infertile rocky site typically yielding smaller bunches that ripen later. Graillot produce two wines, a savoury medium bodied Syrah and the No. 2 Syrah made in a plusher more approachable drink now style. Both wines come from their 3.3ha vineyard in Heathcote. All fruit is hand harvested and destemmed, with 25% whole berries included in the ferment. The wines sees no yeast additions, minimal sulphur employed, and is unfined and unfiltered.
